Carretera blocked east SJC

Thanks for sharing. Here in upper and slightly West Ajijic, we had plenty of rain, but apparently very little compared to you. There was absolutely no apparent damage on the streets of upper Colon nor upper Juarez, in West Ajijic, this morning when I drove to and from downtown Ajijic for breakfast.

I have friends who drove from Rancho Alegre to the San Antonio Hospital this morning. Rancho Alegre is just west of the Joco Hospital. They did not say how long it took them. The comment from their housekeeper who lives in San Juan Cosala is that the September 2007 event was worse... their house had 12 inches of mud and water inside it from that event..

They estimate it took them 40 minutes total. The delay occurred in SJC on the highway because of equipment clearing the road.

And I would like to point out that the trip was west to east which is always faster than going east to west.

 We just took that trip to a restaurant west of the gas station.  Along the way, many delays and many 5 ft. high piles of debris along the side of the road.  One way traffic alternates slowed things even more. The restaurant was busily cleaning up mud, so no lunch there today, and we headed back eastward.  Advice:  don't go anywhere past Yves location westward. Huge mess!! Water still running across the road from the hills.
